Yarn: DMC Cebelia Size 20, Colour #524
Completed: October 15, 2008.
A fun meeting/travel project! This is the second time I’ve done this pattern, though this is the first time I’ve done it with something close the the fineness of yarn called for. It’s usually hard to find fine-gauged cotton. And, I have to say — I’m not sure I’d bother going to less than size 10 again in the future. Probably a function of my poor crochet skills, I found that I still crocheted it fairly loosely, so the net gauge wasn’t that different.
